Chardonnay, "La Source" 2013

Evening Land Vineyards

La Source Chardonnay comes from our old Dijon clone plantings, planted in 1984 in iron-rich volcanic soil. The minerality of this wine is testament to the beautiful soils, while its fresh acidity serves as a backbone to its opulent, gorgeous fruit. The wines of 2013 at Seven Springs exhibit a classical, elegant restraint that we love. Vibrant acidity and some richness provide a counterpoint to the purity of fruit. The Chardonnays are equally impressive with their aromas of hay, freshly cut summer orchard fruits and vibrant, laser focused citrusy acidity in the mouth.

Reviews

  • "94 points. Taut, focused, complex and immediately inviting, deftly layering pear, nectarine, citrus, loamy earth and floral aromas and flavors as the finish plays on. Shows good tension between the fruit and savory notes. Drink now through 2023. 390 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
